Producción de frutos rojos escoceses sufre pérdidas por tormenta
SCOTTISH soft fruit growers say yields of raspberries and strawberries will be sharply reduced this year after Scotland was hit by very high winds on 23 May. They also face massive repair costs after hundreds of acres* of polytunnels were flattened.
Last year, the Scottish soft fruit industry, which is centred in Tayside, eastern Scotland, produced crops worth more than GBP130 million (USD210 million). Growers described the storm as a “catastrophe” for the industry, causing millions of pounds worth of damage, some of which is reported to be uninsured.
